Hailed as the next J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer would be an unlikely candidate considering how she started. A Mormon house-wife of three young sons started writing down a story based on a dream she had, and that story ended up turning into four novels and one blockbuster movie. How inspirational! I read and loved all four of her books and currently have her latest The Host in my To-Be-Read pile. The books are in the young adult section but don’t let that stop you. The story is, above all, a love story weaved through four books that will make you love her characters and hurt for them when they are in trouble. The Twilight Movie debuts 11.21.08 so you have some time to at least get a head start on her first novel, Twlight. Buy through Barnes and Noble for $8.90.
